I'll give you my two cents worth. Clean up is a snap. Depending on how much they need to be cleaned up simple rinsing under water with a little detergent is all that is necessary. If you want to be more aggressive rub the same grit ceramics together to cleani them up. Ony a few lire rubs is all that's necessary.

A little follow up. I recently picked up from Steven Pinson ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) a set of 800/1000 chosera stones. These are a full one inch wide on modified handles. Time I get thru with these stones only a few strokes are necessary with the micro ceramics. I have an extremely sharp edge with great polished angles. My clients love the look of their finished knives.

I'm close to pulling the trigger on the MF ceramics as a solution to my 'problem' but for the asking price I want to make sure I'm not buying a pocketful of aggravation.

So here's my question: my two ceramic honing rods load up quickly with swarf and have to be scrubbed clean with cleanser to restore the bite.

Same deal with these MF ceramics, or would I be pleasantly surprised?

Thx

I haven't cleaned mine in quite a while, and they're working fine, but eventually they'll need to be cleaned. I use "Barkeeper's Friend" on ceramic stones... easy and works great.

It shouldn't cause you much aggravation. :)

I use the liquid form of Barkeepers Friend and it seems to work better.
